Welcome to Aberdyfi Rowing Club. 
We hope that you will enjoy rowing as much as we do.  If you haven't rowed before (or maybe even if you have) there is quite a bit to get used to and we hope this introduction will help you find your feet in the club.
What is Coastal Rowing?

Very simply - for us it’s rowing in the Dyfi Estuary and Cardigan Bay to have fun, to keep fit and, for many of us, to take part in races all round the coast of Wales.

What boats do you row?

We row 24’ long Celtic longboats, with four rowers (each with one oar) and a cox. We have four of these traditional Welsh boats with fixed seats and we use these for races around the coast of Wales.
As well as the longboats, we also row a smaller Teifi Skiff, with 2 rowers and a cox. This also has fixed seats but each rower has 2 oars. Lastly we also have sliding seat sculling boats (2 x FISA racing singles & 1 x FISA racing double 1 x double scull for training and 1 x single Liteboat suited to beginners who wish to learn to scull.
How often do you row?

Competent rowers can  row the single and double sculls whenever they can,dependant on the weather.
It takes bit of organisation to get a crew of four and a cox together, so we row the Celtics on specific evenings and at weekends throughout the summer and just at weekends in the winter. If experianced members wish to organise their own outings at other times they are welcome to do so.(See later for times).

Don’t you have to be very fit?

You have to be reasonably fit to row even for fun but rowing itself gets you fit - and keeps you that way.
